  • Little Talbot Island State park is not little. Its a huge bike riding, beachfront, fishing, picnic having kind of place. Every turn gave glimpses of old beach front Florida. The birds were in abundance and variety. If you're a Florida State Parks enthusiast, there are 7 in close vicinity to each other. Great place to just chill and get your mind right. We had a great day on a absolutely beautiful day recently. You'll get your walking in but its well worth it.
